Judging by the number of drunken videos and text messages I’m getting from Sakhalin Island, New Year seems to have kicked off in some parts of the globe.
So let me wish all my readers a Happy New Year and all the best for 2018. 2017 was a pretty good year for me on any measure, and the blog has been growing steadily in readers and comments if not influence on the global stage. Let’s hope this continues.
Thanks very much for reading, and see you next year, i.e. tomorrow.
